The two took some photographs of the dead animal pulled out by their dog from a lake, then they left it alone. When locals went back to retrieve the body, it was gone. The photos taken by the nurses have now been posted on a local website and...

    Has the Montauk Monster mystery finally been solved? readers will remember the story that gripped the nation last summer a stinking, hairless carcass washed up on the beach in Montauk, N.Y., part of the Hamptons vacation area.

Now one man has come forward, or at least his friend has, to claim it was all the work of him and his buddies. "I was one of those guys behind that Montauk monster...

(WPIX) - Surrounded by water Montauk comes to life in the summer. The quaint village hasn't changed much over the years, but there is something different in the air.

    It's hard to dispute some family resemblances, even after death. The new Montauk Monster, found on a Southold, N.Y., beach earlier this month, probably is closely related to last year's edition, and was likely a stealthy, intelligent, night-ranging creature that may roam alarmingly close to human settlements. The flesh of the new monster's skull has mostly rotted off, but the beak-like snout, wide back teeth and large eye sockets indicate that it may be of the same species as the original monster, which startled beachgoers in the chic resort town of Montauk, N.Y., last summer. Then, as now, speculation was...

Dubbed the Montauk Monster after the Long Island town where it was found, the creature has prompted speculation it was part of a secret mutant breeding program undertaken by the US Government. The Huffington Post has even given the creature its own blog.

    No, Lizzie Grubman's still alive. This is an actual monster, some sort of rodent-like creature with a dinosaur beak. A tipster says that there is "a government animal testing facility very close by in Long Island," but unless the government is trying to design horrible Montauk monsters that will eat IEDs and fart fire at bad Iraqis, we're not sure why they would create such an unthinkable beast. Our guess is that it's viral marketing for something. Ali Lohan's new album perhaps. Click thru for larger dino-damage.

    An unknown creature that washed up on the beach in Montauk, New York, has been dubbed the "Montauk Monster" and captivated the American imagination. Speculation about the identity of the Montauk Monster is rampant. Many skeptical Americans believe that the Montauk Monster a publicity stunt. The most conspiracy-minded are sure the Montauk monster is detritus from a sinister government operation. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-operated Plum Island animal testing facility is nearby, fueling the belief that the USDA is responsible; some would see the Montauk Monster as a hideous USDA experiment gone wrong while others might consider it...

But government biologists contacted by Hamptons-based Web site Plum said after looking at the pictures that "no such creature exists," according to Gawker.

    Unless you've been hiding under a rock, or spending all your time on Tet Zoo, you will almost certainly have heard about the 'Montauk monster', a mysterious carcass that (apparently) washed up on July 13th at Montauk, Long Island, New York. A good photo of the carcass, showing it in right lateral view and without any reference for scale, surfaced on July 30th and has been all over the internet. Given that I only recently devoted a week of posts to sea monsters, it's only fitting that I cover this too. I'm pretty sure that I know what it is,...
